After searching all over Samara for "affordable" (read: under $100 for 4 people), we were happy to find Mirador de Samara. I admit to being a bit skeptical by the "no need for a/c, as we get nice winds up high here". However, the truth had been spoken. We had 2 very comfortable nights with no a/c in our VERY spacious one bedroom condo with a SWEET view of all of Samara. Pool was clean, condo was bug free, water was hot, room fit the budget. Happy campers

The need for cheap or better still free activities has never been more apparent than in Costa Rica. We stay in La Fortuna for a couple of nights and avoid the expensive hotels and hot spring spas, choosing instead to walk 2 1/2 hours to the only free springs which is needless to say where all the locals go. We didn't even need to stick our thumbs out and we got lifts half way both ways. ...
... turtle was laying eggs. We literally stood peering over the hole she had dug watching these ping pong ball type eggs dropping into the hole. It was truly amazing to watch.
We learned that the eggs will take around 60 days to hatch and only 1% will survive to reproduce later in life. They only start laying eggs when they are 20 years old and can live until a hundred. Since the turtle conservation project began they have recorded a tagged turtle returning to the beach for ...
... fast, exhilarating, beautiful scenery and a quite constraining harness (if you know what I mean lads). When that was over, it was a short jaunt over to the Baldi Hot Springs where we spent the day floating around in these naturally heated pools and flinging ourselves down some waterslides which health and safety clearly have not had the chance to check yet. All in all it made for a pretty satisfying day.
That night though was the first that Aslak and I did not spend ...
